Eclipse JET Guide

JET Transformation Project Structure

The new transformation includes two templates, in a directory called templates:

  • main.jet - which serves an entry point to the transformation, and generally invokes one or more templates that write content.
  • dump.jet - which merely writes the input model to a file dump.xml in the JET project's root. The dump.jet template is invoked by main.jet.

Other files found in the project are:

  • META-INF/MANIFEST.MF - the project 'manifest', which declares unique identifier of the transformation (which, by default, is the project name, too).
  • - a text file that defines information for correctly building a distributable version of the transformation.
  • plugin.xml - a supplement to MANIFEST.MF, which declares additional information about the transformation.
  • sample.xml - an XML document that can be used as test input to the transformation.

JET Templates are automatically compiled into Java classes. By default, these are hidden from view by a Package Explorer filter.
